“Washington’s unemployment rate jumped to 7.1 percent last month, the largest one month increase in more than three decades.”
“A cap would be placed on the amount of carbon dioxide emissions that companies release, and companies would be required to buy permits in order to emit at the acceptable level. Companies also could auction off their permits between each other, creating their own market system.”
Good thinking, Queen Christine! Let’s make doing business in Washington State even more expensive. All based on the flawed theory of man-made global warming. Way to go. Oh and isn’t it ironic that a “market system” would be great for auctioning these worthless carbon emission permits but the free market can’t be permitted to work in ways that would really help Washingtonians? How about a free market for health insurance?
